  1. Rock ...or Bulla

    Chances to get out hunting have disappeared. A lot of rain with Hurricane Theta and then some tropical storms. There is a lot of activity late in the season which means higher faster water in rivers and creeks. So I look back on recent curiosities. Hunting 10 days ago, I pick up a curious rock that seemed to have texture, broken at one end. It was white inside. At a distance of 10 feet and 2 hours digging, I found the smaller end. That might be a shovel mark, and for a second I thought I might have broken it, but 10 feet apart, no way. I really do not like breaking fossils. . Now it looks like a water worn whale bulla with a rock boring mollusk hole at one end. But what about that white inside? What is it? How did it form? A couple of more photos... So, we might say that the white was sand (silica) that filled the bulla, and underwent a "transformation". Note that in the last photo , the white seems to merge with the fossilized bone... Curiouser and curiouser... I certainly look for insight from those who have seen this previously.
  2. heres a link to a newly described fossil seal that we have been finding bones and skulls of here in taranaki, new zealand for the last 15 or so years. https://www.google.com/search?client=opera&hs=0U9&biw=1496&bih=754&tbm=nws&sxsrf=ALeKk01vc72KwYUUtagYwhLgRk96jWpnXQ%3A1605241533476&ei=vQquX5veHM7w9QPNhoLgBQ&q=new+zealand+fossil+seal&oq=new+zealand+fossil+seal&gs_l=psy-ab.3...33364.36178.0.37013.5.5.0.0.0.0.554.1364.0j1j3j5-1.5.0....0...1c.1.64.psy-ab..0.0.0....0.uRROVU4bIrg
  3. Fossil Tooth

    Hi. I was at Ramsholt Cliffs in Suffolk, Uk today and found this strange looking tooth. It’s a very large incisor and looks too big to be from a modern human. Could it be an ape of some sort? The rock formations are London Clay, red crag and coralline crag, on the river shoreline a few miles inland from the Suffolk coast. It is a well known treasure trove for fossils. I also found various sharks teeth, also exciting but this tooth is very interesting! Any help or ideas as to what it is from would be great.
  4. Is this a real mammoth tooth?

    Hi all, Someone offered me to sell his what he called to be a baby mammoth tooth. I have been looking around but I am a bit suspicious about the root. I would appreciate if you would kindly put some expertise on it before I buy it. Unfortunately the origin is not known, but it is probably found by fisherman in the North Sea. Thanks for helping me out! Ronny
  5. Sinistrofulgur contrarium

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Sinistrofulgur contrarium (Conrad, 1840) Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 8 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Differences in the spire and sculpture of the fossil species separates it from recent Sinistrofulgur sinistrum.
  6. Busycoarctum tropicalis

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Busycoarctum tropicalis (Petuch, 1994) Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Sub adults of this species have been identified as Busycoarctum rapum while adults resemble Busycoarctum maximum. Heilprin (1886) in his description of B. rapum stated that it is a smooth shell lacking shoulder spines. B. tropicalis is more heavily striated with shoulder spines suggesting a different species.
  7. Busycotypus bicoronatum

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Busycotypus bicoronatum (Tripp, 1988) Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Quality Aggregates Quarry, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Although similar in appearance to B spiratum, B bicoronatum is closer to the recent Channeled Whelk, Busycotypus canaliculatus but less inflated.
  8. Busycotypus spiratus

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Busycotypus spiratus (Lamarck, 1816) Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA.

  9. Laeviscyon planulatum

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Laeviscyon planulatum (Dall, 1890) Stratigraphy: Bed 4 Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Almost identical to L. laevis but lacking a subsutural sulcus. Since both L. planulatum and L laevis are found in the same unit, the sulculus could be variation thus making L. laevis a synonym to L. planulatum.
  10. Laeviscyon laevis

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Laeviscyon laevis (Petuch, 1982) Stratigraphy: Bed 4 Tamiami Formation Location: APAC Quarry, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Less inflated than L. demistriatum with a deep narrow subsutural sulcus. Mostly smooth with faint spirals
  11. Laeviscyon demistriatum

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Laeviscyon demistriatum (Petuch, 1982) Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Inflated final whorl with subsutural sulcus. Mostly smooth with faint spirals
  12. Pyruella schmidti

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Pyruella fredericoae Petuch, 1994 Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Similar to P. sarasotaensis but with a sloping final whorl.
  14. Pyruella sarasotaensis

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Pyruella sarasotaensis Petuch, 1982 Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Quality Aggregates Quarry, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Shape edged final whorl with a deep subsuture sulculs.
  15. Pyruella rugosicostata

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Buccinidae Ptychosalpinx multirugata (Conrad, 1832) Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Kissimmee River, Highlands County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Common in the Yorktown Formation of Virginia and North Carolina, but rarer in Florida. Mostly found in the Tamiami deposits in the Kissimmee River exposures.
  17. Shark tooth? North Carolina

    I found this tooth (same tooth, two sides) in some phosphate mine slag from the Aurora Fossil Museum. Can you tell what species this is? I don't see anything quite like it on the charts I've consulted. The other pic is from the same slag and is some kind of ray, I believe.
  18. Echinofulgur helenae

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Echinofulguridae Echinofulgur helenae (Olsson, 1967) Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: APAC Pit Bed 4, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: More variable that E. echinatum, E. helenae is the common Echinofulgur in the lower beds of the Pinecrest. Ranges from tall straight individuals similar to E. echinatum to short stubby forms reminiscent of Tropochasca petiti. A row of spines on the siphonal canal distinguishes it from E. echinatum.
  19. Echinofulgur echinatum

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Echinofulguridae Echinofulgur echinatum (Dall, 1890) Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: APAC Pit Bed 4, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: This species is much more common in the Florida Pleistocene than the Pliocene. It lacks the row of spines on the siphonal canal which is indicative of E. helenae.
  20. Tropochasca petiti

An extinct genera with no modern analog to compare with.
  21. Melongena consors

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Melongenidae Melongena consors (G.B. Sowerby II, 1850) Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Large and highly variable which has led to taxonomic splitting. Inflated body whorl with variable rows of spines. Ranges from the Lower Miocene/Pliocene Caribbean and the Upper Pliocene Florida deposits.
  22. Melongena consors

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Melongenidae Melongena consors (G.B. Sowerby II, 1850) Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 8 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA.
